AZUKA Theatre Company's artistic director, Kevin Glaccum, taped an episode of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" in New York on Friday.
He's sworn to secrecy about how he did on the show, which won't air until spring, but told us it was "a really amazing experience." He was happy that "Project Runway" host Tim Gunn was filling in for Meredith Vieira; not that he has a problem with Vieira, but he's a huge Gunn fan. It isn't Glaccum's first time on a game show. The thespian, who has worked for 23 years as a bartender at Woody's (202 S. 13th) and teaches theater at Arcadia University, won 15G on "Jeopardy" 10 years ago.
Glaccum, who went to New York earlier this year to take the 50-question multiple-choice qualifier test for "Millionaire," was called to be a contestant in October but declined because he was directing "Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom" at Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater (2111 Sansom). Next up for the company is "Azuka Lounge: Azuka's Naughty or Nice Holiday Bash" on Dec. 7. For info, visit azukatheatre.org.
